Hot Wheels is a new 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale wracking toy automobiles introduced by American toy manufacturer Mattel in 1968. It was the key competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel purchased Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Even though Hot Wheels were initially meant for kids and young adults, they’ve become popular with mature collectors, such as limited edition models are now made available.
Racing track set
In addition to the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold separately). Even though it would be upgraded during time, the first trail consisted of a series of brightly colored orange road sections (pieced together to make an oblong( circular race track), using a single (or occasionally two) “super chargers” (faux service stations through which cars passed on the paths, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels( which would propel the cars across the tracks).
Through the years, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by kids, but in the previous 15 years[vague] there has been a growth in the number of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with all the toys, the ordinary collector has over 1,550 cars, and children between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 cars. Most consider the collecting trend started with the Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss has been called the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he’s arranged two collectors’ events annually in some sort since 1986. The very first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held every year in the autumn. The convention happened in a variety of locations around the nation until 2001, once the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities outside of California through the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and was one of the first to combine collectors all over the world. He also writes on the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, car descriptions and values, which can be used by virtually every collector to find out more about the hobby along with their collection. Strauss sold his group from 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
